Herbal Infusion Natural hair shampoo Recipes
Custom-made hair shampoos are not as thick or as quickly washed out as commercially acquired mixtures; however, they will successfully clean hair with naturally sustaining elements and botanicals. Since homemade herbal hair shampoos are so much gentler, you can expect that your hair will not feel as squeaky-clean in the wake of washing. This is because it will not be stripped of its natural oils, as it would be with commercial hair shampoo!
